Sore Throat after oral, Sinus, Burning Ureatha

Tested Negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea a week after having unprotected sex with my ex. I was prompted to get tested after feeling slight irritation during urination...but since i tested negative, I though nothing of it. However, I'm currently suffering from a persistent sore throat, which seems to get worse after performing oral on my current girlfriend. This has been going on for atleast a month in a half. At first i thought it was irritation from me smoking, but I think I may have given her something that in turn keeps re-infecting me when performing oral sex.

I have no physical bumps or lesions on or around my genitals, and no discharge and nether does my girlfriend. But I still feel irritation, sometimes though very mild when urinating. And my throats is sore as we speak. Also after having unprotected sex with my ex (same time as mentioned above) a week or two later.... i caught a really bad sinus cold, which resulted in one of my eyes swelling up. Could this be symptoms of herpes/oral herpes...or some form of bacteria.

1.) With these symptoms what diseases could i have possibly contracted
2.) Is getting tested 5 days after exposure too soon? Could this give me a false negative test result?
3.) When i got tested my doctor mentioned other forms of bacteria i could have caught in a hot tub during vacationing.  Is this possible?

If you are also having oral symptoms, like a sore throat, you need to have your throat cultured.  Keep in mind, though, that most oral stds don't give symptoms, and certainly wouldn't cause sinus problems.

5 days is usually fine, but if you are concerned, test again.

Sure - all kinds of creepy ickies live in hot tubs.

I'm going to get re-tested, but I have to wait to my insurance kicks in after first of this year. However, I just wanted to reiterate some of my symptoms in a timeline, just to make sure i didn't leave anything out.

Sunday, August 3 2008
- Had unprotected sex with someone I believe may have infected me with something
- Had unprotected sex with my girlfriend later that night

Between  August 3, 2008 - till now
- Feeling sporadic sharp pains in penis and rectum
- very  VERY mild burning during urination, maybe 3 times..stops immediately after urine begins t o flow out of penis

Thursday, August 7, 2008
- Tested for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trich (Swab and Urine samples)
- Received antibiotics in the form of 7 pills

Thursday, August 11, 2008
- Received Negative Test Result for all 3 Test
- Began taking Antibiotics

Between Late August - Mid September 3, 2008
- Had a very bad cold and sinus infection, resulting in my eye swelling up.
Infection lasted for several weeks Which I complicated by smoking cigarettes

Between August 11, 2008 - Mid October 2008
- Discovered every time I give oral to my girlfriend, the next day I have a sever sore throat which lasts for about a week. During the week sometimes I would get white patches in the back of my throat. This went on for quite some time before I discovered that the oral sex was causing the sore throat

Waiting to be retested
No discharge or bumps or lesions on genitals


I believe i contracted something that infected my girlfriend which in turn keep re-infecting me, including my throat and genitals.

QUESTIONS:

1.) I tested 4 days after unprotected encounter, was this too soon for: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and Trich?

2.) My girlfriend believed she had a yeast infection and took some over the counter medicine, and hasn't seen any symptoms since. This was in late September. Could my symptoms be from a yeast infection?

Especially since i have the recurring sore throat after oral sex.

3.) Does Herpes align with any of my symptoms?

I's been 4 1/2 months and I have not hand any breakouts of any sort

1 - 4 days is on the early side, but is probably accurate.

2 - It doesn't sound like yeast.

3 - No.

Why don't you go to an std clinic and test?  You don't need insurance, and most are free or low cost.

You are not going to know if you have anything until you test. Symptoms don't always mean you have an STD.

You have also been advised by Dr. HHH in the expert's forum, and you should follow his advice.

If you must test again - and I think you feel you must - then just google your town and state and std clinic.
